A few weeks ago, mobile game studio Jam City revealed more details about their new “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery” roleplaying game and this past weekend at A Celebration of Harry Potter, the company let guests experience it first-hand.
“Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery” is the first mobile game in which players can “create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student.” The app allows gamers to “create a personalized student avatar, attend classes, choose their house, learn magical skills, form friendships or rivalries with other students, and make pivotal decisions that will influence their character’s story arc” throughout their Hogwarts experience, as they travel down the path to becoming a witch or wizard.
